-Buy a Game and Sell Your Soul?

A British computer game retailer says that it now owns ‘the souls’ of 7,500 online customers. The company inserted the following  “immortal soul clause” into their terms and conditions contract:

“By placing an order via this Web site on the first day of the fourth month of the year 2010 Anno Domini, you agree to grant Us a non transferable option to claim, for now and for ever more, your immortal soul.

Should We wish to exercise this option, you agree to surrender your immortal soul, and any claim you may have on it, within 5 (five) working days of receiving written notification from gamesation.co.uk or one of its duly authorised minions.”

Response: Wow, scary! The games are addicting enough without this.

When was the last time you ever fully read a computer program contract before you downloaded the thing? I don’t think I ever have. Supposedly this was all in fun and that was the point this company was trying to make? Besides it being a wonderful publicity stunt.

The company also noted that it did not plan to enforce its ‘ownership’ rights and soon would e-mail their customers vacating any claims on their souls.             *Top
